AWS IAM Access Key Events Notifier with Multiple Pipelines

Send notifications for AWS IAM access key create, update, and delete events using a pipeline for each type of event.

Getting Started


Download and install Flowpipe ( and Steampipe ( Or use Brew:

brew install turbot/tap/flowpipe
brew install turbot/tap/steampipe

Install the AWS plugin with Steampipe:

steampipe plugin install aws

Steampipe will automatically use your default AWS credentials. Optionally, you can setup multiple accounts or customize AWS credentials.

Create a credential_import resource to import your Steampipe AWS connections:

vi ~/.flowpipe/config/aws.fpc
credential_import "aws" {
source = "~/.steampipe/config/aws.spc"
connections = ["*"]

For more information on importing credentials, please see Credential Import.

For more information on credentials in Flowpipe, please see Managing Credentials.


git clone
cd public_cloud/notify_new_aws_iam_access_keys


Start the Steampipe service:

steampipe service start

Start the Flowpipe server:

flowpipe server


By default, all messages will be sent to the terminal. You can setup an integration and a notifier to send the notification through email, Slack, or any other supported integration.

To send messages through email instead:

vi ~/.flowpipe/config/integrations.fpc
integration "email" "default" {
smtp_tls = "required"
smtps_port = 587
smtp_host = ""
smtp_username = ""
smtp_password = env("MY_EMAIL_PASSWORD")
from = ""
notifier "my_email" {
notify {
integration =
to = [""]

Then set the notifier variable:

cp flowpipe.fpvars.example flowpipe.fpvars
vi flowpipe.fpvars
# Set the notifier to use for inputs and messages
# Defaults to the "default" notifier
notifier = "my_email"
